ADVOCACY 

The MSHRP uses its advocacy capacity to mobilize students and faculty to promote interventions that enhance human rights and social justice. In collaboration with coalitions and partners our program engages in community outreach to survivors, strives to empower them, and ensures that their voices are heard through just and sustainable policies on asylum and immigration detention.  Some of our partners are the NYC Refugee and Asylee Health Coalition (NYCRAHC), the Cara Project, and Physicians for Human Rights (PHR).
